Kristen Brown is an artist with Asperger's syndrome and PTSD who always wondered how could she ever hope to have a bright, happy future with one foot stuck in the mire of such a dark, unhappy past. She found the strength and fortitude to over-come, reconcile, forgive, let go of the pain, and help others do the same. Kristen shares her story of over-coming adversity to inspire people and help them understand that no matter what horrible, difficult, or challenging situations we go through in life, there is a way to persevere and break the cycle. Kristen wants the down-trodden masses to know, life does get better. Currently residing in Jacksonville, Florida, Kristen fosters rescued abused animals, home-schools her children, and promotes children's books written by her 10 year old son, Kaleb who also has Asperger's syndrome.
